Librivox recording of Silas Marner, by George Eliot.

Read by rachelellen.

Silas Marner (originally published in 1861): Betrayed by a beloved friend and accused of a crime he didn’t commit, awkward Silas Marner is expelled from his beloved religious community — the only community he has ever known. He exiles himself in the remote village of Raveloe. Friendless and without family, set apart from the villagers by their superstition and fear of him, he plies his weaving trade day after day, storing up gold which becomes his idol. When his gold is stolen, he is rescued from despair by the arrival on his lonely hearth of a beautiful little girl, whom he adopts, and through whom he and the other people of the village learn that loving relationships are more fulfilling than material wealth. (Summary by rachelellen)

Subject: An excellent job of reading this story
I was thinking about doing a recording of this book. Naturally, I looked to see if a good job of reading it had already been done. It has.

Unfortunately, a couple of teenagers had some fun messing with the ratings. One, the "CEO of Burger King," and the other the "CEO of Zaxby's." BK-Dude gave it five stars, while Zaxby-Dude gave it a one-star rating--five times. This has hopelessly skewed the rating. Internet Archive management--if there is one--ought to show more consideration toward the readers than what has occurred here!! It takes a long time and a lot of work to do a good reading. I don't blame the teenagers nearly as much as whoever is supposed to be monitoring this sort of thing. (I was a teenager once, so I remember how the teenage bwain works. (That's right, I intentionally misspelled brain because I still have remnants of teenagedom left)).

In any event, rachelellen does a fine reading of it. She certainly does a much better job than I could hope to do. The teenagers have messed the ratings up, misleadingly giving the impression that this is an amateurish job, which it certainly is NOT.
